2018.02.02_Elizabeth Cronin_EXCELLENCE.jpg

The Student of the Week this week is ELIZABETH CRONIN for demonstrating the GWCS value of EXCELLENCE.

After crushing her midterms last week, all A’s, Elizabeth took a long weekend and then came back and picked-up in the third quarter right where she left-off! Elizabeth had (yet another) great week of classes, turning in assignments, playing in two basketball games, and being a good friend to everybody in her path. Earlier this week one of her teachers was heard saying, ‘That kid is going to be a great college student. She totally understands what it takes to do well in school.’ If you’re trying to change your study habits, look no further. Elizabeth is the gold-standard for how to do well in school!

Check out the 'Student of the Week' bulletin board near Mr. Pereira's classroom. Each week a student is recognized for his or her demonstration of one of the eight GWCS Values.

GWCS VALUES: LEARNING, SERVICE, KINDNESS, EXCELLENCE, RESPONSIBILITY, INVESTMENT, TEAM PLAY, INTELLECTUAL CURIOSITY
